If the idea of avocado ice cream sounds strange to you, that’s because you’ve never tried it.
If you have tried it, then you know that it’s a delicious treat! Creamy, delicious homemade ice cream – ok, nice cream – can be ready to eat after just a few minutes of prep.
If you’re impatient, you can eat it straight out of the blender (we won’t tell), or let it firm up in the freezer for a few hours before scooping into a bowl.
Our luscious avocado ice cream gets extra green color – and antioxidants – from a secret ingredient: spinach! The added greens are flavorless (your kids will thank you for this) so no one has to know they’re eating healthy ice cream.
